The founder was a retired airline executive with more than 33 years airline management experience. As a General Manager, he directed airport operations at various US locations, and opened up new operations in Europe, South American and China. He then went on to manage the airline’s worldwide operation. He served as a Manager of System Operations Control for 5 some years. From there he moved on to a business development role at the airline’s parent company. His final assignment, before retiring in early 2002, was setting up and managing the operational side of a new fractional jet business owned by the parent company that began operations in the fall of 2001.
Shortly after retiring and moving to Florida, our founder became a flight instructor and began to create an aircraft rental/flight training business in Fort Lauderdale, FL built around the Cirrus SR20/SR22 aircraft (Correct Aviation Services and Correct Aviation Maintenance). He earned a Master Flight Instructor accreditation as he built the rental and training business into the largest Cirrus Training Center before selling it in early 2009 and moving to Arizona.
Wright Aviation Services was then created to focus on providing top quality pilot training and support services for individuals acquiring and owning high performance cabin class aircraft in Arizona and throughout the western United States.
